I we don't have implemented this into mod_dav. We implemented it into our own module (Catacomb)
and therefore we need to extent mod_dav to handle the ACP.

What kind of extensions did you add to mod_dav?  These are all in TRUNK right now, but no
in 2.2 branch:

DAV Option Patch to allow adding thing to the DAV or Allow headers:

DAV Resource Type Patch to allow additional resource type responses:

DAV Provider Patch add hooks for dav modules to get access to the filename:

Was this the kind of things you need to add to mod_dav to get your module working to do acl

I am sure you also had to add hooks or something to do the acl stuff in mod_dav, but that
was the last part of mod_dav_acl[1] patch that I am splitting up once I get the last supporting
patch in (still needs a little more work):

DAV ETag Patch:
